It’s official people – The Witcher Season 2 has been officially announced by Netflix, and the first season hasn’t even come out yet.
This is pretty crazy in my eyes, but it must mean that Netflix is very confident with the show, otherwise, they would have waited a bit to see whether people liked it or not.
So, this sounds as if Netflix things we’re really going to love their upcoming show which stars Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia.
The show is based on the best-selling fantasy series of books by Polish author, Andrzej Sapkowski, and the books have been described as an epic tale of fate and family.
The TV show’s story will be of the intertwined destinies of three individuals in the vast world of The Continent, where humans, elves, witchers, gnomes, and monsters battle to survive and thrive, and where good and evil is not easily identified.
Showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich commented: “I am so excited that before viewers dive into season one, we are already able to confirm that we’ll be returning to The Continent again to continue telling the stories of Geralt, Yennefer and Ciri, and to showcase more of the amazing work that our cast and crew have delivered.”
